hey gefff. so sorry i havent been able to talk in agessssssssss! but on my b-day got a new mare called saffire. shes 14.3 and a thoroughbred?arab=anglo-arab. she is lovely and has been trained to do everything and i am going competing with her loads. Im also training a 12.3 welsh sec A called george. he is 4 and has just started learning to jump. also am bringing in a 2 year forester called ruby. shes so sweet. hows things going with your horses ???
YES, he can jump, Geoffrey! Much higher than I can! He's shown at 3'9"!
His career will be dressage now with a few cavaletti thrown in and lots of hacking.
Did you watch the little video I posted? I'm really excited about him!
Holly is also welsh! We have two other welsh ponies and 1 half welsh half arabian horse that i enjoy to ride! I love them! Thank you very much all the lessons and training pay off!! :) Sarah
Well thats horses for you,great levellers arn't they.Really jealous of your lovely weather.Had a great time as assist TD at the weekend, really enjoyed it.How many horses do you have? seems like a few from your photos.
Hi geoffrey, just got home from an amazing holiday in your country. Spent a week on Magnetic Island,QLD.It was bliss. Home to zero deg frosts and highs of 9 deg. Winter just sucks. Belly clipped Coutts today,will clip Shelby on Mon,Off to ODE this weekend as Assist TD, looking forward to it. I have been asked by the NZEF to train with them as TD and XC Judge.Really looking forward to it.What events have you been to lately.We totally shut down here there are no competitions in our area until Oct due to weather and ground conditions.
Any feedback on the stuff I sent you yet? Also I will be interviewed on web radio on March 28th at 10 am Pacific time, so maybe you can listen in - not sure what time that is "down under". Anyway, here is the link: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/vickers_tree Cheers, Ann.
It takes a LOOONG time, Geoff, for it to help the back, just as it takes babies months of crawling before they are strong enough to walk. If you have children you'll remember.
It also gives a good reminder of how a four legged creature moves.
Remember, the weeding is the excuse for crawling, it gives you an excuse for your weird behavior when people ask you what you are doing!
Glad it arrived safely. I told Angela that I would be sending you a DVD so maybe the 2 of you can discuss plans now, and maybe she can see it when you are done with it and go from there. I think you guys in the horse community should get together and discuss the tour as then it would be organized with everyone knowing what is going on, let me know what happens, cheers, Ann.
Has the DVD arrived yet? how are we doing with the snail mail? Any comments if you or anybody else has watched it? chat soon, off to ride more horses today, the weather has been glorious and we are making use of it. Cheers, Ann.
